Latest information on the 2020/21 winter season in Kühtai
SAFETY IS OUR TOP PRIORITY. This is nothing new: it has long been our motto in Kühtai. Kühtai has so many kilometres of piste; so many cable cars, huts, cafés and restaurants, that there is no need to brave the crowds on your holiday.
We are committed to making sure you can enjoy your holiday in peace, and are stepping up our efforts even further for the upcoming winter season. We are of course adhering to all legal requirements relating to COVID-19, and have already thought through clear rules and measures – for the health and safety of everyone, and to ensure you have a relaxing and revitalising holiday in Kühtai.
The best thing? Gloves, goggles and face coverings worn for outdoor sports mean you already have your very own personal protective equipment, and Kühtai is also taking a whole range of other precautions to keep you safe.
